HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

So I was going through my spare axles. (I had a 20 year collection) and stupidly I didn’t label them. However they were always zip ties as pairs. Over the years I have snapped a few shafts the early 924 ones being the easiest.
I found some early offset turbo ones and snapped a few of them

Now here’s the issue, I’m swapping the transmission out and started unpacking the driveshafts andmy non labeling technique is biting me in the arse.

The bottom 2 are easy, early 924 turbo, next one up is 924. The next 2 I assume would be late offset 944. But then I have unequal length ones. The only thing I can think of would be late offset automatic transmission? Does anyone know, I did a search and other than 930 conversions there is not much on the what seems to be the different length shafts. There all 100mm CV’s and the presumably late offset have nice caps to contain the grease.

the axle length didnt change with the early/late offset, it changed when they went from steel to aluminum trailing arms. 85.5 and newer manual trans 944 all have the same axle axles length.

the auto trans cars did have 2 different length axles, that would be my assumption as to what those are. i had a look at the parts sites hoping for some dimensions but no luck.

I had a V8 in an auto so it could well be a spare set, I used to grab axles at swap meets because I broke quite a few until I stopped it squatting so hard, that’s when it would pick up the front wheels and snap speedo cables when it landed. Thanks for the input, I did a quick search last night (about an hour) and came up with nothing. I can get rid of the ones I no longer need with the electric conversions.

I was thinking about an LS1 300 HP in an automatic 968 Cabriolet. I have all the parts necessary and was wondering how the Automatic held up.

The 968 rubber one is much tougher, it’s $1500 part, well it was 15 years ago. The 944 one.....

I was planning on using a clutch without a throwout bearing to couple the flywheel to the torque tube.

That would work, or a direct coupling, the auto box does overheat easily so I put a huge cooler on it. I used to tow my race car to the track with it and it was fine. I even towed a 928 home on a front wheel dolly once, the 968 one is much tougher and does allow some give.

If you need to workshop manuals on the autobox let me know, I purchased the VW ones for the 944 box 15 years ago to rebuild mine. I have no use for them. Just PM me an address and I'll post them to you
